Alone at Last

It had all started with a kiss. His lips on hers. In public. In the restaurant. Hundreds of witnesses. Henna’s ambiguous response to his advances did not deter his unwavering determination to capture her heart. He persisted. She pulled away. Yet all the while, day after day, he wore her down, made her promises that only he could keep and gave her gifts that only he could give. After a chance encounter at her friend’s wedding, she found him and danced with him and fell in love with him. In their dance, they touched, electric cords of passion coursing through their veins, uniting their hearts to one another until there was nothing else they could do but find their place of longing and rest, of solace and tranquility. So they found this place, off the beaten path, in secluded woods. It was here where they would consummate their deepest affections.

The Heart to be Conquered

It took more strength than Delphine realized to carry his love across the threshold of her querulous heart. As she lie on the beach towel, the sea breeze ruffling softly through her auburn hair, he scooted closer and pressed his lips to hers. His was a delicate sweetness, an effervescent intoxication that intensified with every charm and fortitude. One kiss was enough. All defenses fell that day. The waves whispered up to a thirsty shore that soaked in love. And hers was the heart to be conquered.

A goodnight kiss

Moonlight gleamed across the hay-covered loft
with a silver ray of light
dancing over her delicate
wavy blonde hair.

I leaned up from the ladder,
captivated
and heart-struck,
beholding my lover’s beauty.

Leaning over the top,
she smiled through her loving gaze,
and our lips met
like two stars converging
in a galaxy that knew no other.

I whispered goodnight,
a tender voice
but a desperate plea
to be with the one I love
forever and ever.
